Love, What Is It?

I don't fathom love and its intricacies.

Can somebody tell me what it is?

--All I know is that 't is intertwined with friendship;

And somehow it befalls on what we call courtship.

I only 'love' all that is related to pain; --

The beloved thing that goes through my vein.

If, only, one can halt this eternal hurting,

Alas! Love--is Not--as excruciating.
